Punjab Housing and Urban Development Minister Sukhbinder Singh Sarkaria on Saturday said the Greater Mohali Area Development Authority (GMADA) would soon allot plot numbers to Letter of Intent (LoI) holders of residential plots in IT City, SAS Nagar.


The Minister stated this after holding a meeting in Mohali to review the works being executed by the Special Development Authorities in the state.


During the meeting, Mr Sarkaria inquired about the status of development in IT City, Mohali, where 256.66 square yards residential plots allottees were awaiting for possession. The department officials apprised the Minister that GMADA had already handed over the possession to the allottees who had applied for plots measuring 300 square yards and 500 square yards under the scheme launched in 2016.


However, the area earmarked for the 256.66 square yards plots could not be developed due to non-issuance of environmental clearance and only LoIs were issued to the applicants who were successful in the draw of lots.


The officials further said that amended environmental clearance for IT City project had been obtained from the state level Environment Impact Assessment Authority and subsequently on March 4, 2019 contract for execution of development works in the area where these plots were located had been allotted and works on the site were in progress.


Mr Sarkaria ordered the engineering staff to ensure that the works were completed as per schedule, so that the allottees may not suffer any long. The officials gave assurance that development at the site would be completed within next six months.


Ms Vini Mahajan, Additional Chief Secretary, Housing and Urban Development, said that the staff supervising the development works at the site had been instructed to constantly review the status of work and ensure its timely completion. The estate office had also been directed to remain prepared for holding the draw for allotment of plot numbers to the LoI holders as soon as the development work at the site is completed, she added.
